Millie


Our new Challenge theme for this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow, is
'More is Better'. So, you can add as much as you like to your work  embellishing, papers etc. .
Remember we like your entries to be in a Shabby Chic, Vintage or Primitive style.
Please pop over and see what we have all been making.
I hope you will join us this week.




My card began with choosing an  image from the Paintbox Poppets CD by Crafter's Companion.
She is a little sweetie, Christine Haworth is such a talented artist.
I used a pretty pink paper for the base layer. Next a couple of embossed papers.
All the colouring  is Victorian Velvet Distress  ink.
Other additions are Memory Box die cuts , gems, ribbon, lace, flowers and some pins.
At this stage I stopped adding, although there are still a few things that I could add sitting on my bench, but I resisted the temptation.

Challenges I would like to enter are
Diva's By Design Challenge 39 Summer theme.
The Shabby Tearoom Week 18 Shabby Beautiful [ inspiration from the Photo].

Thank you for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
